Under the Allen Bill (CA state law), you can send your kids to school in the
district where you work IF they have room. You need to go to the Oakland
district office and apply for an interdistrict transfer. You may not find out
from Berkeley if they have room till after school starts.
It's simple. For the Berkeley side, call the BUSD attendance office and they
will advise you. On the Oakland side, go to the attendance office at Portable
15 at the administrative offices downtown. Bring proof of your employment in
Berkeley and fill out the form. It's usually done in January or February of
the year before enrollment.
